SSD & HDD storage 

Big Disk enables you to manage both unstructured data and data-intensive storage challenges. You can choose either cold storage (HDD) or block storage (both HDD and SSD). 

HDD: The HDD Big Disk is perfect for storing large quantities of large files you don't use constantly and which don't require high throughput. It's extremely suitable for digital archives for example.

SSD: Our SSD storage has faster throughput and is, therefore, more suitable for storing large amounts of frequently requested data or files which require high throughput rates, such as periodic backup and video archives.
